Conrad Johnson Premier 17 LS Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction Many audio/video enthusiasts find themselves in a position where their desire for the ultimate A/V system exceeds their actual budget, finding themselves perhaps an inheritance or two short of the money to actually purchase their "perfect system." For those of us in this category, we must carefully build our ultimate systems one piece at a time. There has long been debate as to which product is best suited to build your system around. If you don’t have a good power amplifier, you likely can’t build your system around the speakers, as your dream speakers might need more and better power. I don’t think anyone would dispute the validity of building your system around your source equipment, such as a CD player, but with imminent change to the digital format (DVD-Audio, SACD), this might not be your best option right now. What the next digital format will be is anybody’s guess. In my opinion, ...

Conrad Johnson MF2500 Stereo Power Amplifier
Introduction Bill Conrad and Lew Johnson joined forces in the early 1970's to form Conrad-Johnson Design, Inc. with the goal of building high quality tubed audio preamplifiers. From the beginning Conrad Johnson was all about the sound and stayed far from the hype and flash of the high end audio industry’s hey days of that era. Conrad Johnson’s first amplifier, the MV-75 was introduced in 1978. The MV-75's success opened the doors for Conrad Johnson to become a serious contender in amplifiers as well as preamplifiers. Conrad Johnson produced its first solid state electronics in a new line called Motif. The Motif line was soon after joined by the Sonographe line to form a respectable product offering of solid state gear, from mid-level high end and up. The company continued to develop both tube and solid state gear and has used its two and a half decades of experience to bring us its latest products, ...

Camelot Roundtable DVD Player
Introduction The Camelot Technology Roundtable is a progressive output DVD player designed for the true audio and video enthusiast who appreciates cutting-edge gadgetry and is willing to invest in a high-performance front end for their music and theater system. The $3,999 Roundtable is a progressive scan DVD player packed with all of Camelot Technology's best tricks, including an internal digital line doubler, 24/96 up-conversion, Camelot's Dragon 5.1 jitter reduction for 5.1 AC3, DTS and other digital formats, Camelot's powered S-Video cable technology and more. The concept behind the Camelot Roundtable was to build a DVD player for the enthusiast who has a mid-to-high-end audio system and a video system that includes a TV that can accept progressive inputs. The Camelot is designed around a Panasonic A-110 DVD player with a highly modified, heavy-duty chassis that measures 17 inches wide, 12 inches deep and three-and-a-half inches high. The Roundtable has all sorts of output options, including coax for ...

Conrad Johnson Sonographe SC26 Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction As I received the Sonographe SC26 preamplifier for review, I admittedly looked upon this assignment with great uncertainty, knowing little what to expect. Like many of you, I respect for the creator and parent of the Sonegraphe SC26, Conrad Johnson. Few intimately familiar with fine electronics are unaware of the success and respect that CJ has amassed, with better than 20 years of experience in creating fine electronics. One of Conrad Johnson’s latest, the highly touted ART preamplifier, is considered by many to be the finest preamplifier ever made, priced as such at a crisp $15,000. However, Conrad Johnson has long been known for their tube amplifier and preamplifier products and although they have produced solid-state electronics, they are much better known for tube products such as the Premier Series amps and preamps. Unpacked and ready for hook-up, the Sonographe SC26 looked much like many of the Conrad Johnson pieces with which you may ...

Cinepro 3K6se Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction While many amplifier manufacturers continue to only think about stereo, Cinepro knows the future is multi-channel sound. The six-channel 3K6se amplifier was designed expressly for the demands of 5.1 digital audio sources--such as DVD and Laserdiscs encoded with Dolby Digital and DTS. Digitally encoded movies require amplification that can maintain a wide dynamic range without distortion; and whereas dialogue normally requires an average of 5-10 watts, key action scenes (such as the White House explosion in "Independence Day") peaked close to 750 watts for brief bursts in Cinepro's extensive tests. To accommodate this range of levels, the 3K6se is capable of generating a peak output of 1 kilowatt per channel (4 ohms). The inputs and outputs are divided into three two-channel groups (front LR, center/sub, rear LR). Each group can also be converted from two to one channel (bridged mono). In the multi-channel mode, the 3K6se is rated at 375 watts per channel into 8 ohms ...
